A decadent home that encompasses contemporary, modern and moody.
Entrusting an architect to understand your vision can be a daunting experience. However, when you’ve commissioned Gerhard Breedt from Gerhard Architect with such responsibility, you can only expect a refined, expert designer with a dedicated and professional team, with meticulous attention to details, diligence and a hands-on approach to the project that ensures the entire process from design to completion is only but a great success. Gerhard’s build project management is what made the ride a smooth one and the overall project a huge success.
Considering the ethos of the estate’s design code, the sea-views, orientation, position, climate, sun and natural light, Gerhard created a site-specific design approach and by designing a progressively unique modern home meant that he interacted with the clients in the design process. He has certainly added a new competitive edge to Simbithi with this contemporary design.
Upon arrival, you’re immediately welcomed by the dramatic front entrance façade that makes a bold statement with its concrete pillars and double volume, slightly tinted glass. It truly gives you the sense of that “you have arrived” feeling. Steel, glass, concrete and Eva-Last composite decking were some of the chosen building materials. The exterior walls are finished in dark charcoal grey, complementing the off-shutter concrete. The garage finish is sublime with its floating glass top-level windows. The main entrance is highlighted by a gigantic glass front door opening up to spectacular sea views. A focal point of the front entrance is the large 3D, double volume delicious monster wooden panels. These panels are decorated in wallpaper and are finished with sleek lighting to create a silhouette during nightfall, while LED lights accentuate the noteworthy floating staircase in dark oak on each tread.
The magnificent master bedroom is situated on the lower level and features a walk-in closet leading into the room. The main bedroom has a luxurious bathroom with large windows leading out onto a private patio. The upper level of this home was designed to accommodate separate living spaces for guests and family. It encompasses a self-sustained living space with a bar, TV lounge, two en suite bedrooms and a gymnasium. It’s clear that many hours of hard work, research, and attention to the finest details were put into executing the build and conceptualising the home’s interior. Talk about some home goals right here.
